Arctic Dinosaurs

'Dinosaurs on Ice' was re-badged and re-edited (with some additional animation) for the PBS/Nova network in the US. It would be interesting to see how this version differs from the cut we had here in Australia.

Tribal Designs

I think the premise behind these designs was if a small enclave of Aztec-like people survived undisturbed to modern day. The jade masks were important for some reason...I can't remember why.

Some jungle concepts for the game. I remember seeing some of the preliminary design stuff for the Peter Jackson 'King Kong' film at the time and being heavily influenced by it.

Mr Firth goes to Washington

An interesting week, with the global financial crisis deepening and the USA electing its first African-American President.

Here are a couple of shots I completed for the Charles Firth comedy documentary that went to air this week on SBS. Unfortunately, I don't have the audio with these clips.

The first shot refers to the moment when the US public woke up to the faux reasons why America went to war in Iraq. Not wanting to accidentally squash Mr. Firth, the production asked me to create a falling fridge in CG. Note the 'I Love NY' sticker. That was my little joke.

The second shot recreates the pivotal moment from the famous 2002 French documentary '9/11.'
